I have been using Postgresql ever since Akonadi started, and the upgrade just means that 
you have to remember to stop akonadi before the upgrade, then do the upgrade, and 
then restart akonadi.  My system takes backups every day so I never did an extra one, and 
I have never needed to use the backup.  I have also never needed to to anything with any 
settings.  This is on Debian.
